About 

My personal interests lie in the study of complexity in the contemporary urban environment; specifically the intersection of architecture, culture and history. I am particularly fascinated with re-thinking existing typologies and the use of innovative digital methodologies.

I am currently seeking to join a firm that shares my passion for contemporary design and enriching the built environment.
